Former Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur has accused the state government for not doing enough for relief and restoration work for the flood affected people of the state.

Talking to media persons at Mandi on Saturday, Thakur said, “Several areas are still waiting for relief work to begin as administration has failed to provide drinking water and internet facilities and restore road connectivity at many places.”

He said, “The state government should try to understand the difficulties being faced by people in remote areas and take immediate steps to help them.”

Thakur also criticized the state government for raising VAT on diesel in the state in this hour of crisis making the diesel costlier and demanded immediate roll back of the decision.

 He said , “ The state BJP leaders are in constant touch with the Central government; Rs 364 crore have already been released to the state government and a team is coming on Monday to make on the spot assessment of  the losses .”
